Air India was first invited to join Star Alliance in 2007. However, a difficult merger with Indian Airlines led to its membership being suspended in August 2011. After renewed negotiations, AI was once again invited to be part of the alliance and its membership was finally approved on 24th June 2014. Air India officially became a member of Star Alliance on 11th July 2014. Here is Air India's first aircraft painted in the Star Alliance livery as it turns on to taxiway N1.

I can just see the PAX getting all bent out of shape about flying on this Star Alliance version. "I don't want to fly on this one because it doesn't have the little palace windows painted around the windows, you are ripping me off!"

Re: the comment from Canada below

Some pax might actually come back and say - Hey I flew a new airline today. It's called "Star Alliance" :-)

From the classic IC livery(with anniverary logo), to the interim 'Indian' livery, to the new AI livery and now *A, this is one bird with a lot of makeovers.
